Your LG TV most like has a lot of user-friendly features including WiFi connection, streaming, easy hook-ups for external devices, and more! If you are loving these amazing features but now you want to wirelessly connect your speaker or headphones to this technologically advanced device, you probably want to know if it will connect to Bluetooth.

Most LG TVs come equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 already set up and ready to go with the click of a button! If your LG TV runs on the WebOS 4.0 system and is one of the models OLED, QNED Mini LED, Nano Cell, or 4k Ultra, you have Bluetooth at your fingertips.

Now you may be thinking: I don’t know my LG TV model off the top of my head. Well, you don’t have to! We are going to go through a few easy steps for you to find out if your television has Bluetooth, and if it does, how to turn it on and use it.

How Do I Know if my LG TV Has Bluetooth?

While there are a few ways to assess whether or not your LG TV has Bluetooth available, the easiest option is simply using your remote. Here’s how it works:

  • Open the SETTINGS with your LG TV remote.
  • Find and click ADVANCED SETTINGS.
  • Find SOUND MENU and select SOUND OUT.
  • If you have Bluetooth pairing capabilities, it will be on this list. 

Another way to find out is to visit the LG TV products page on their website and filter the televisions for Bluetooth availability in the SPECS section. 

However, for this process, you will need to be able to identify your own LG TV model. Also, if you have an older model, even by a few years, your device will have different features than the new ones being promoted on the website.

How Do I Turn On Bluetooth on my LG TV?

If you have followed the steps on your LG TV menu to find out if your television has Bluetooth, you are already 90% of the way finished! Let’s reviews those steps and add one more for pairing your devices.

  • Open the SETTINGS with your LG TV remote.
  • Find and click ADVANCED SETTINGS.
  • Find SOUND MENU (or AUDIO) and select SOUND OUT.
  • Choose your chosen device and click PAIR.

It is important to note that the device you want to pair, whether it be a speaker or wireless headphones, will only appear on the list if you have already powered it up and turned on its “pairing mode” so make sure to do that first!

Can I Use my LG TV’s Bluetooth with my Magic Remote?

LG has a new tech toy that users are loving! It is called the magic remote and it can not only control your television from anywhere, but it can also work similarly to a computer mouse to scroll across your screen more efficiently. It is also a universal remote that will automatically detect any devices and can easily control them as well as your TV. 

To top it all off, it can operate on voice command, so if you would like to connect a device to your TV using Bluetooth and it is already paired, simply speak into your magic remote and say “Bluetooth”, select the external device, and you are good to go!

Connectivity Issues

So now you know your LG TV offers Bluetooth capabilities, and you have followed the steps to pair to your desired device. But it just won’t seem to connect! Luckily, there are a few simple steps to take that will most likely fix this problem.

  • The first thing to do is to make sure you have turned on your external device and turned on “pairing mode.” Many users make this little mistake and can never seem to find the appliance on their Bluetooth list!
  • If the external gadget is on the list but will not connect, try unpairing the two and then re-pairing. 
  • The best advice when working with technology: turn it off and on again. Try it with your Bluetooth, your television, and even your external device. Most often, this does the trick!

If you are still having trouble connecting your Bluetooth, there could be a few more options for at-home solutions before you call in the big guns. Check out this LG help page for instructions to make sure you’re not missing a step.
